Hurricane Maria creating swells along East Coast

Hurricane Maria creating swells along East Coast”

Only one hurricane season in the past 50 years broke into the top 10 on this list, when Hurricane Katrina breached the levees in New Orleans, killing 1,225 people.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says people along the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic coasts should watch the progress of Maria.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles. "Interests in the Bahamas and along the Carolina and Mid-Atlantic coasts should monitor the progress of Maria". In addition, a very high risk of risky rip currents will exist.

The East Coast is bracing for high winds and treacherous surf from Hurricane Maria, which is still churning in the Atlantic days after the storm caused widespread devastation in the Caribbean. The Category 1 storm is bringing tropical storm conditions to the East Coast of the USA, including heavy rain, unsafe surf, and potentially life-threatening storm surge.

Maria's maximum sustained winds Tuesday morning are near 75 miles per hour (120 kph). It is moving at 8 miles (13 kilometers) per hour. The map above shows how rain will be streaming over the same areas of the central USA and contained compactly to Maria's track east of the US, leaving most of Virginia and several states just to the west and south in a "doughnut hole" of dryness.

The federal government will pick up 100 percent of the costs of debris removal and other emergency assistance to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

The Trump administration is announcing it will waive federal restrictions on foreign ships' transportation of cargo to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

Rosselló told CNN affiliate WAPA radio on Saturday that the Guajataca Dam is still holding, but he is still pleading for residents to evacuate the area.

A HIGH SURF ADVISORY remains in effect for all beaches.

"It's insane how much the beach has eroded", said Midgett, who moved many of her belongings off her floor, just in case. "The structure has been significantly compromised".

Power had been restored to a handful of hospitals and surrounding areas by Monday afternoon but Public Affairs Secretary Ramon Rosario said it will take months to fully restore power to the island.
